Skeleton of "Enormous Dimensions" Found with Amorite Tablet in Muskingum County, Ohio

Skeleton of "Enormous Dimensions" Found with Amorite Tablet in Muskingum County, Ohio


This tablet was found in another mound in Muskingum County, Ohio.  The tablet described below may have been similar with Amorite cup marks. It was believed that the first two symbols were the Alpha and Omega, meaning the "beginning and end." The single cup mark in the center was used by the Amorite giants to signify the 'One Sun God' or 'Holy Father.'


The American Antiquarian, Volume 3, 1857
     A Slab of Sandstone Containing Hieroglyphics. — During some extensive mound explorations near Zanesville, Ohio, under the direction of Dr. Everhart, of that city, a somewhat remarkable stone was found. It is a slab of sandstone, 12£ inches long, 11 inches wide, 4 inches thick, and containing two lines of hieroglyphics across its face. The slab was found leaning against the head of a clay coffin, at the bottom of a large mound. The coffin was made of clay, molded by hand, flat at the bottom, straight on the sides, but arched over the top, and contained a skeleton which is reported to have been of enormous dimensions. The description of the stone and of the hieroglyphics was read at the last session of the American Association, and the slab placed on exhibition. It has been pronounced "very puzzling." It contains among the hieroglyphics certain signs which are quite similar to some on the Davenport Tablets.
